I know that every time I write my personal thoughts down on paper for others to read I wind up dating myself. As I quickly approach the sixth decade of my life, I have decided that this is ok. I am getting older, and because of this, I am becoming wiser. With life wisdom comes the ability to not worry so much anymore about what people think of me or my writing. I write these thoughts down for me and if you happen to mine a nugget here and there good for you!
There’s always tomorrow for dreams to come true. This song truly highlights my childhood. I have heard this classic song all of my life. As a child, I would hear this melody year after year as I watched Rudolf, the red-nosed reindeer. I would hear and sing this beautiful song never actually considering what tomorrow might bring. Up to this point in my life, there has always been a tomorrow. I have always had a chance for a do-over. I have been able to take the mulligan no matter how awful yesterday might have been. I have learned that the mistakes or missteps often characterize the direction that our lives will take.
Wow, what a wild and crazy week it has been. History has been made and our country seems to be drifting. The distance between right and left are getting wider every minute and our national identity is being skewed. So many people have become their political affiliation.
I love to dream! I have always been a dreamer and it seems as if I must be passing my wonder gene onto my grandchildren.
This past weekend I had the opportunity to take three of my grandkids to Toys-R-Us to pick up three copies of the 2016 Christmas Catalogue.
Foggy Brain! Is this a new trend…I think not.
It’s real folks (don’t judge me)…can I get a witness from some of my coffee drinking friends?
Recently, I talked about some disciplines that would help us serve ourselves as we get closer in our relationship with God. I want to continue on that thought in this post. As we develop the disciplines of prayer and study, and as we learn how to completely lean on and trust God. We can leverage these learned disciplines to serve our family.
Change…it is something that continually happens.
Like it or not…nothing remains the same. So we must prepare ourselves for change.
We live in a culture that loves to tout the fact that we are so willingly ready to compromise for the common good of humanity, when we know that truly down deep we want what we want…and we want it the way we want it.
We are praying for…
Nicole Callias (Complete Healing)
Jordan Callias (Strength for the journey ahead)
Chloe and Gadsden (that they will handle this process well)
Harry and Kristin Hatcher (That God allows them to enjoy many more days with little Truett)
Truett Hatcher (That God protects him and keeps him safe)
Tonight (4/8) we are going to suspend our normal family life group and spend the hour praying and worshiping. Pastor Bernabe will be joining us also with the ALIVE group in the worship center at 6:30.
We pick up this morning continuing our thoughts from yesterday. Couples need to pray together. This is an important yet sometime difficult task. Satan likes to keep us busy, he wants us to busy to pray. I am asking you this morning to make prayer for your spouse a priority.
